These muffins are truly a staple in my diet. They are chocolatey, moist, guilt free goodness for your sweet tooth. I have realized over many years of trying to limit myself when it came to chocolate and sweets that if I just have "better for me" options on hand I will be more successful at staying on track. Also the protein in these muffins and the fact they are so tasty will keep you satisfied.
